Truly, I'm fine is we lose Myers. I know it sucks, but the only way we'll get him is if we over-pay for him & I don't want to overpay for Myers any more than I want to overpay for Mario.

We should have locked Myers up last year. Same as Mario. But our rookie GM has got to learn his lessons the hard way.

I would think most people who visit this board are the type who come for information and don't post a lot, most probably never even bother to register. These people come here to find something out and go into the main forum looking to read about Mario being picked up by someone else run into a 30 or 40 page thread that started 3 weeks ago--- if they can even find it. Like Mario Williams being signed by someone else does not effect the Texans at all, it's already been moved to the NFL forums I guess.

I do know this is not the way most of the regular posters would prefer it but I'm willing to bet that most of the people who don't visit this site daily would prefer recent big news to maybe have new post. Maybe we could have new post's about recent news stay for a couple of days before merging or some other way go about it.

I'm sure if anyone bothers to respond to this it will be to the effect of "who cares about them if they don't bother to post". I'm willing to bet that these "non posters" are the majority and not the minority and I do see advertisements on these boards now days. Might wanna think about keeping them happy too.----just sayin!

^This, I am one of those that come here daily and dont post much. I know this wont go over well but I'm tired of trying to sift through 25 pages of weeks old information to find out relevent news/updates. Loading this page and seeing the same 6 topics everyday is frustrating. I see the same topics and it makes me think this site is stagnant.

There's this cool feature the mods use, it's the "Edit Thread Title" function.

Go look at the Mario thread in the NFL section...the mods altered the title so it plainly states he's now a BUFFALO BILLS player.

And guess what? The entire bajillion posts that led up to his signing with Buffalo...they're all there for anybody who wants to relive the glorious conversations we had about it all.

But it will be done by clicking a thread, in the NFL forum, that lets people know they are viewing a thread about a guy named Mario Williams who is now a member of one of the 31 other teams not named Texans.

Why is this so hard? It makes perfect sense to put threads where they belong. Mario threads should be in the NFL section. Easiest idea in the history of message board guidelines.

That is exactly the point. If you have not been following the thread and you want to find out the latest news you have to sift through a bajillion post's to find what your looking for. Some people may not want to do that and if the object is to get more hits on Texanstalk.com you might at least want to consider what the people, who don't post or check threads dailey, want.

Use the freaking SEARCH option! Duh.

Type in "Mario Williams" and it will pull up every thread that contains the word Mario. It will display every post that has the word Mario Williams if that's your choice, as well.

There are easy ways to get your news fix. You just have to use the tools to get there. Meanwhile, back on planet Obvious: We want to see the most RECENT news items listed on the front page. And we've been known to also hit Page 2 or even Page 3 to see if something from a week or so ago bumped down off of Page 1.

Who wants a complete list of all 1,000 thread titles all on one page?????? Happy scrolling! Or use the search function and get right to where you want to go.

At this point, you guys KNOW that this is right. You're just fighting it for the sake of the fight.

Seriously, you want the latest news on Mario Williams? Check a sports news site. You want the latest opinion on Mario Williams? Hit the last page button on the thread.

Lmfao! there is no right or wrong. It's just what people would prefer. That capitalization of the word KNOW almost made me change my mind, though.

Threads. merges. plfff! Did some of you not expect to see a lot of talk about losing Mario?

Some of you need to visit Texas Children's Hospital and meet people with real problems, who arent a fraction as whiny.

So, hats off to the Texans, for not overpaying Mario Williams. We Saints knew, when Carl Nicks started whining about money, that 1. he wants a lot, and 2. his ass can be replaced. And guess what? It did. Houston's got a long line of DE's going back to Sean Jones back to Elvin Bethea. You'll find another one.

You'll be fine. counting down the days till DD.
